Daniel Clowes “Patience” Book Tour


PatienceTour (2)Arriving in March 2016

Daniel Clowes travels America to celebrate the release of Patience, the most anticipated graphic novel of 2016!

Patience is the first all new, original graphic novel from Daniel Clowes (Ghost World) in over a half-decade, and also the biggest and most ambitious book yet in a storied career that includes multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards, a PEN Award, and an Academy Award nomination.

Patience is an indescribable psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially “Clowesian,” and utterly unique in the author’s body of work. This 180-page, full-color story affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet.

Praise for Patience:

“Clowes plumbs the depths of science fiction in this intriguingly bizarre love story…Another strong entry in an already stunning body of work, and one that will surely be hailed as one of the best releases of 2016.”

Publisher’s Weekly (Starred review)

“Daniel Clowes’s new graphic novel is a time-travel thriller filtered through his own furiously warped sensibility. … Nobody draws reality curdling around its edges like Clowes… and Jack’s all-devouring quest for vengeance mutates his story from a sci-fi whodunit to psychedelic psychological horror.”
